Fiscal Year 2017 Chesapeake Bay-Watershed Education and Training Program-Capacity Building

Chesapeake B-WET is a competitive grant program that supports existing, high-quality environmental education programs, fosters the growth of new, innovative programs, and encourages capacity building and partnership development for environmental education programs throughout the entire Chesapeake Bay



Successful projects advance the environmental literacy goal of the Chesapeake Bay Agreement and goals of the NOAA Education Strategic Plan by building capacity to support hands-on environmental education about issues affecting the Chesapeake Bay watershed for students and related professional development for teachers, administrators, and other educators who serve formal K-12 audiences.

These Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs) integrate field experiences with classroom activities and instruction in NOAA-related science content.

Through this funding announcement, NOAA is soliciting proposals that support two Priority Areas under the theme of Capacity Building for MWEEs:
(1) State or Multi-State K-12 Environmental Literacy Initiatives, which advance MWEE Implementation, and, (2) MWEE Mini Grant Program Administration, which supports elements of MWEE implementation at the school-level.

Chesapeake B-WET has traditionally issued one funding opportunity annually, however, in FY 2017, NOAA is issuing two separate funding opportunities under the Chesapeake B-WET program due to the variation in B-WET Program Priorities and the types of projects supported under these Priorities.

This FFO is to support Capacity Building efforts that support MWEEs; direct support for Systemic MWEE Implementation and Emerging MWEE projects is not covered under this FFO.
